HTC Legend review

HTC Legend review

We did little to disguise how impressed we were with the HTC Hero when we reviewed it all the way back in July 2009. At the time we suggested it was the device with which Android came of age; since then, of course, we've seen a huge growth both in the number of manufacturers and devices available, and in Android itself. Into that fray wades the HTC Legend, undoubtedly one of the stand-out devices from MWC 2010 in February and packing the latest versions not only of Android but of HTC's Sense, which rather fittingly debuted with the Hero. Can HTC history repeat itself? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

BlackBerry slider: touchscreen, WiFi-N & HSPA?

BlackBerry slider: touchscreen, WiFi-N & HSPA?

The talk of a BlackBerry slider smartphone continues to bubble, and BGR's sources reckon they have some fresh information on the matter.  The in-development device is apparently a portrait-orientation slider, more similar to the Palm Pre in form-factor than it is to the more common side-sliding QWERTY handsets, and it's likely to have a touchscreen along with the pull-out 'board.  In fact the source reckons this particular BlackBerry is what the ongoing Magnum/Dakota project - which paired a keyboard, touchscreen and optical joystick - evolved into.

That would leave the unnamed new device as pretty much a BlackBerry Storm 9520 with a slide-up keyboard similar to the BlackBerry Bold.  Other specs include WiFi 802.11n - "100% support" insists the source - and a 360 x 480 display.  Software is expected to be BlackBerry OS 6.0, and - best of all - this isn't going to be a Verizon exclusive; RIM's first slider will be a GSM/HSPA device.

NEC FP810 femtocell: tiny but 14.4/5.7Mbps data rates

NEC FP810 femtocell: tiny but 14.4/5.7Mbps data rates

European 3G users suffering from dodgy cellphone signals in their home or office could soon have a new femtocell to choose from.  NEC is promising to deliver their new FP810 femtocell to carriers in April 2010, and unlike previous models the personal 3G hotspot is capable of eight simultaneous calls and HSPA data rates.  NEC are using Ubiquisys' femtocell hardware, and since they're making a big deal of the fact that the FP810 is only 8cm tall, we're guessing it's the Ubiquisys G3-mini [pdf link].
